Moon Phase Necklace, Philippines
|Availability:||In stock (3)|
The balance of cool silver and grey tones in the Moon Phase Necklace will have you looking lunar. This necklace from the Philippines features capiz, the thin shell of a marine mollusk. First artisans wash and soak shells. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes, dyed and edged with metal wire. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labor-intensive process. Before glass windows became available in the Philippines, capiz was used for windows in houses! Silver-plated brass chain with 10 capiz circles in smoked, natural, and ombre gray.
Dimensions: Capiz circles 0.75"/1.5 cm, necklace measures 23" / 58 cm
Handcrafted in the Philippines
